  1. Apple releases macOS Catalina 10.15.7, possibly the last Catalina update There were also updates to Final Cut Pro X and iMovie. Enlarge / No operating system is an island, but macOS Catalina is named after one. Apple 11 with 11 posters participating Earlier this week, Apple released updates for iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS—but nothing for macOS. Usually, Cupertino updates all its operating systems at once, but we're in an odd place right now with new annual releases of the former three making their way to users' devices while macOS Big Sur still sits an indeterminate amount of days away. However, Apple nonetheless followed up today with an update for macOS Catalina labeled 10.15.7. It's likely the last update to Catalina before Big Sur is released. The company also released new versions of Final Cut Pro X and iMovie for the Mac. The Catalina update is a modest one that fixes three bugs: a graphics-related problem on new iMacs with Radeon Pro 5700 XT graphics cards, a bug that prevented automatic connection to WiFi networks, and an iCloud Drive syncing issue. Want it straight from the source? Here are Apple's release notes for macOS Catalina 10.15.7: macOS Catalina‌ 10.15.7 provides important security updates and bug fixes for your Mac. Resolves an issue where macOS would not automatically connect to Wi-Fi networks Fixes an issue that could prevent files syncing through ‌iCloud Drive‌ Addresses a graphic issue that may occur on ‌iMac‌ (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2020) with Radeon Pro 5700 XT Some features may not be available for all regions, or on all Apple devices. For detailed information about the security content of this update, please visit: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT201222 The updates to Final Cut Pro X and iMovie are also about fixing bugs. Here are the Final Cut notes: Fixes an issue in which XAVC media from the Sony PXW-FX9 camera is not recognized Fixes an issue where brightness levels shift when switching between Better Quality and Better Performance in the viewer Fixes an issue in which effect keyframes are not added correctly when using onscreen controls Improves stability when using the transform tool with multiple clips in the timeline Improves reliability when exporting an FCPXML that contains Compound clips Addresses an issue which could prevent sharing at certain resolutions Fixes an issue in which sharing a Compound or Multicam clip from the timeline was disabled The iMovie update improved stability and fixed an export bug. Yesterday, Apple also released an update for Xcode that fixed a problem that could "cause Xcode to crash while viewing documentation."

  3. Microsoft re-re-re…releases KB 4023057, the “blast a way to the next version” patch And here we go again. Microsoft has just re-released KB 4023057, the “Update to Windows 10, versions 1507, 1511, 1607, 1703, 1709, 1803, 1809, 1903, and 1909 for update reliability” patch that’s gone through dozens of versions. The intent is quite simple: If you’ve done anything to prevent automatic installation of the next version of Windows (at this moment, version 2004), running KB 4023057 is intended to blast away all impediments to being force-marched onto 2004. Last time I talked about it in Computerworld was a little over a year ago. I don’t see it available on my production machines, but if you see it, you should studiously ignore it.

  4. Complaints flood in that August Windows 10 Cumulative Update is causing BSOD, performance issues There are growing complaints that the this month’s Patch Tuesday Cumulative Update is causing massive problems for a subset of users. WindowsLatest reports that numerous users are having major issues, ranging from performance problems to actual Blue Screen of Death crashes. KB4566782, released this month on the 11th August, started with installation issues on some PCs, but things appear to have escalated since. One Microsoft Answers one user complains: “19041.450 and 19041.423 (last month’s preview) both break my Thinkpad X390 pretty badly when Hyper-V is installed. The Windows Hello camera stops working, and the machine BSODs when going to sleep or when trying to run Lenovo Vantage.” Another user notes: “I installed last Tuesday, August 2020 update and broke my IR cam too on my X1EG2, and BSOD on Lenovo Vantage.” Performance issues include system slowdown, increased boot time, lower fps counts in games, external hard drives not working, and slow File Explorer and a 3rd and 4th Windows 10 user complained: “Whenever I try to open any anything my screen freezes and respond a few seconds later. It freezes frequently when I try to open a folder, video, music, code editor, Android Emulator, Adobe XD or any other window it freezes.” “This update has made computer unusable. Windows explorer launches and freezes. Cannot use my external hard drives. Booting freezes. All sorts of problems. I now have to spend hours wiping and reinstalling everything.” If your device is experiencing the same issues after installing this month’s Cumulative Update, it could be resolved by uninstalling the update in Settings and then pausing updates until Microsoft has corrected the problems.

  5. Microsoft announces the August 2020 Xbox Update with more UI changes Today, Microsoft is announcing the August 2020 Xbox Update, and it's available now to Insiders. A lot of what's new includes part of the UI that we're going to see on the Xbox Series X. Indeed, both the Xbox One series and the upcoming generation both run the same Windows 10-based software, so a new UI for the Series X means a new UI for the Xbox One. First up is improvements to the Guide, which you can see in the image above. Like previous updates to the Guide that we've seen, it's meant to be cleaner and easier to read. At the top, you'll see Home, My Games & Apps, and the things you were recently doing, and of course, you can customize what you see. There are also buttons at the bottom now for things that you might not be accessing all the time, but are still important. There's a new notifications inbox, which can be opened by clicking the button on the bottom of the Guide. It combines messages, alerts, and more into a notifications feed, and it's coming to all of the Xbox apps soon. There are some minor improvements to Parties and Chats with text previews, and there are individual volume controls for each Party member. Microsoft is also adding tips and tricks in the guide, which are meant to make it easier to use for those using an Xbox console for the first time. There's a new activity feed look. Everything should show up as the same size now, so you don't have to guess how your content is going to show up in the feed. Microsoft also said it made a bunch of other improvements in other areas. The August 2020 Xbox Update is coming to the general public soon, but there are a few other features that are exclusive to Xbox Insiders for now. This mostly includes the rest of the Xbox Series X UI. The whole look and feel for the Xbox Series X should roll out to Insiders this month, and that includes all Xbox apps as well. Profile themes are on the way, and you'll be able to sign into multiple Xbox devices at once. Microsoft announces the August 2020 Xbox Update with more UI changes
  6. Microsoft Releases Out-of-Band Patch KB4578013 for Win8.1 Microsoft has released KB4578013 for Win8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 on 8/18/2020. This Update covers CVE-2020-1530 and CVE-2020-1537 Windows Remote Access Elevation of Privilege Vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities were covered for other versions of Windows in the August Patch Tuesday updates. KB4578013 is being offered as a checked Important update through Windows Update. MITRE CVE-2020-1530 An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows Remote Access improperly handles memory.

  7. Microsoft releases the Xbox June 2020 Update Microsoft is releasing its monthly update for the Xbox One family of gaming consoles today. The features in the Xbox June 2020 Update center around the idea that more and more people download games via services like Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live Gold, and EA Access. Microsoft is adding new overlays and badges for those three subscriptions. As you can see from the image above, the gamertag has an 'ULTIMATE' badge next to it, indicating that that user is an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber. The games shown have an overlay that reflect that they're part of Xbox Game Pass. This is all meant to make it easier to manage the digital content that you subscribe to. The other big new feature is verification of official Clubs. Since the feature was first introduced in mid-2016, a lot of official Clubs have started up, but there have also been a lot of fan-made Clubs. Now, you'll see a verified checkmark, just like the ones on Twitter, for official Clubs. Microsoft only told Xbox Insiders what they were testing in version 2006 six days ago. Now, most rings will move onto version 2007, and it will presumably be another few weeks before Insiders get to know what new features to look for. Microsoft releases the Xbox June 2020 Update
  8. Microsoft releases the May 2020 Xbox One Update with new features Today, Microsoft announced the May 2020 Xbox One Update, which to be clear, has nothing to do with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. The Xbox update that coincided with the May update for Windows 10 was released in April. If that sounds confusing, it's because it is. Luckily, all you really need to know are the features coming to your Xbox One console. All of this stuff was announced earlier this month when the company started seeding version 2005 to Xbox Insiders. More improvements are being made to the Guide, with Microsoft wanting it to serve as the only thing you need to play. The default tab is now on the left, rather than in the center, and there are fewer tabs. Friend Suggestions is now under Find Someone, and Discover Clubs can be found on the Clubs page. There's a redesigned Community page, which splits content into four channels: shared by friends, official posts from games, Club activity, and Popular on Xbox Live. There are new filters for game collections, such as Genre and Player Count. Finally, as always, you'll find Mixer improvements. It's supposed to be better for browsing streams, as you'll now see live thumbnails. Microsoft releases the May 2020 Xbox One Update with new features
  9. Microsoft is investigating issues associated with KB4556799 cumulative update Microsoft released the KB4556799 cumulative update for Windows 10 users earlier this month but the update caused some issues for the Windows 10 users. Now, Microsoft has acknowledged the issue and is working towards a fix. Earlier today, Microsoft updated the support article to acknowledge the following issues associated with the latest cumulative update: Symptom Workaround We have seen social media and news reports related to various issues with KB4556799. We are actively engaged with customers who are reporting issues. To date, we have not seen widespread issues reflected in telemetry, support data, or customer feedback channels. We continuously investigate all customer feedback and are closely monitoring this situation. Note If you experience any issues, we’d like to know. Please provide feedback using the keyboard shortcut Windows + F or go to the Start menu and select Feedback Hub so that we can investigate. After installing this update on a Windows 10 device with a wireless wide area network (WWAN) LTE modem, reaching the internet might not be possible. However, the Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI) in the notification area might still indicate that you are connected to the internet. We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release. Microsoft has been tight-lipped on what caused these widespread issues but it’s good to see them acknowledge the issues with the latest cumulative updates.

  10. Windows 10 KB4556799 update is causing audio issues and data loss for some users Last week, Microsoft released Windows 10 KB4556799 cumulative update as a part of the Patch Tuesday update. The update brought some new features and improvements to the operating system but it looks to have also included some bugs. First spotted by Windows Latest, it looks like KB4556799 is causing audio issues and temporary data loss for some users. According to Reddit (1, 2), Microsoft answers forum and the Feedback Hub, users are facing issues ranging from problems with audio driver configuration to automatic driver uninstallation. It seems like the issue can be fixed by disabling audio enhancements and reinstalling the Realtek driver. Audio issues are not the only one causing issues for Windows 10 users. According to users on Microsoft answers forum, users are also experiencing data loss. The silver lining here is that the issue seems to be temporary. As Microsoft loads a temporary profile during updates, it sometimes overrides the default user profile. This has been reported in the past but Microsoft never acknowledged the issue. Some users have confirmed that restarting the computer around six to eight times after the update loads back the default profile and restore all the user files. If the workarounds don’t help then you can head to Settings>Update and Security>View Update History>Uninstall updates, and uninstall the latest cumulative update. Once done, we recommend going back to Update settings and pausing the updates temporarily to ensure the problematic updates are not downloaded again.

  11. Bethesda and id Software have pushed update 1 out to DOOM Eternal, adding new features like empowered demons, echelon leveling, and a new Precious Metals event. In fact, between these new features, a slew of balance changes, and a bunch of fixes, this update adds a lot. Unfortunately, there are many players who are upset by one of the features the update is adding on PC: Denuvo Anti-Cheat. According to the patch notes for DOOM Eternal update 1 over on Bethesda.net, this implementation uses Denuvo’s new kernel-level driver. Bethesda says that the Denuvo driver will only start when the game launches and stop when the game does “for any reason,” reassuring that it also won’t take screenshots, scan file systems, or stream shellcode. Bethesda says that this Denuvo driver is required for playing Battlemode on PC. Despite Bethesda’s reassurances, PC players don’t seem to be too happy about this – at least the ones who are replying to the tweet you see embedded below aren’t. Indeed, PC gamers aren’t usually fond of most types of DRM, and Denuvo has drawn particular ire many times in the past. Aside from the DRM woes, players will find that this new update adds an empowered demon feature that sounds pretty neat. Demons that manage to kill players who are working their way through the campaign will now become powered up before being dropped in another player’s game. Should you encounter one in your own game, killing it will reward extra ammo, health, XP, and progress toward events, though if you’d rather not deal with beefy demons, you can turn this feature off through the main menu. Also new to the game is a feature called echelon leveling, which kicks in once you complete DOOM level 250. It’s at that point that you’ll get your first echelon, which grans you a special insignia and reverts your DOOM level to 1. Essentially, it’s DOOM‘s version of the prestige systems FPS games have had for years. Empowered demons and echelon levels really just scratch the surface of what’s included in this update, so if the presence of Denuvo Anti-Cheat hasn’t put you off the game, hit the link above to read more about the balance changes and bug fixes that are landing on all platforms. We’ll see if Bethesda and id Software change their minds about Denuvo after receiving this blowback, so stay tuned for more. Source
  12. Windows 10 KB4549951 update is causing BSOD, Bluetooth and WiFi issues, random system crashes Microsoft latest Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 Version 1909 and 1903 that is Windows 10 KB4549951 update is reportedly causing multiple issues for those who installed the update as well as for those who’re trying to install it. Interestingly, though, the KB4549951 update changelog doesn’t include any known issues. Upon installing the update, users are given generic error messages like 0x8007000d, 0x800f081f, 0x80073701, etc. And now since the update offers some important security features, not being able to install the update is a matter of concern. What is even worse is that after installing the update, you’ll face a bunch of other issues that will ultimately intervene in your workflow. After installing the Windows 10 KB4549951 update, users are now facing issues such as broken Bluetooth and WiFi, connectivity problems, BSOD, poor system performance. Some users are also facing a complete system crash. “I updated (KB4549951) my Window 10 on 15.04.20. After updating, Bluetooth stops working. Now Bluetooth is not showing in Device Manager. I tried to uninstall Updates but still, it is not showing. What to do now. My Laptop supports Bluetooth,” a user wrote on Microsoft forum. “After this update, my pc cannot connect to the internet. I can see the wifi adapter in the device manager and there are no problems reported. No available networks show to connect too,” another user noted. A number of users are complaining about the BSOD problem. “I noticed that after installing the KB4549951 update, I get BSODs with the error “KERNEL MODE HEAP CORRUPTION” whenever I try to do something seemingly CPU-heavy (watching livestreams/conferences, even trying to look at the Event Viewer). I did some experimenting and noticed that the update was seemingly the cause of the BSOD – everything else seems to be fine,” a user wrote. Microsoft hasn’t acknowledged any of the issues yet, so we have no official solutions to get rid of these issues. Nevertheless, as always, you can always uninstall the cumulative update and that will, hopefully, no longer cause any of the aforementioned problems. However, it’s worth noting that uninstalling the update will make your PC more vulnerable to attacks as your PC is missing the important security patch. If you want to still go ahead, you can follow the below steps to uninstall the Windows 10 KB4549951 update. HOW TO UNINSTALL Windows 10 KB4549951 UPDATE Hit Windows+I to open the Settings app Click the “Update & security” option. On the “Update & security” screen. Switch to the “Windows Update” tab. Click the “View update history” option. Click the “Uninstall updates” link. If you’ve installed the latest Windows 10 cumulative., are you facing any issues?

  14. iOS 13.4.1 and iPadOS 13.4.1 are out with a fix for FaceTime Today, Apple released iOS 13.4.1 and iPadOS 13.4.1, introducing a few key fixes. The update is the 12th since iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 were originally released, and they're not the last either, with version 13.4.5 currently in beta. Both updates have a handful of key bug fixes. For one thing, there was an issue that causes iOS 13.4 devices from being in FaceTime calls with users on iOS 9.3.6 and earlier, and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 and earlier. This was resolved on both iOS and iPadOS. Another fix for both platforms is for a bug with choosing Bluetooth from the quick actions menu, causing it to fail. Finally, there's one fix that's exclusive to iPadOS, and more specifically, the fourth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro and second-generation 11-inch iPad Pro, fixing an issue that caused the flashlight to not turn on when it was accessed through Control Center. These updates do not include any security fixes, at least according to Apple. iOS 13.4.5 should be the next update, and that will likely arrive in a few weeks or so, followed by betas for iOS 14 and other major updates after the WWDC keynote in June.

  15. Windows 10 KB4541335 is causing BSOD, Boot failure and performance issues for some users Two weeks back, Microsoft released KB4541335 cumulative update to the Windows 10 users. However, it looks like the update was shipped with some serious bugs that are causing a number of issues for Windows 10 users. Many Windows 10 users have taken Microsoft Answers Forums to report issues ranging from BSOD, Boot failure and even performance degradation. According to the reports, users are seeing “Page Error”, boot loops and someone even said that the KB4541335 update causing their system to “became very unresponsive and took ages to open programs and browsing became very slow.” Microsoft is yet to acknowledge the issue but since the KB4541335 update is marked as optional, it might be wise to skip it until Microsoft can release a proper fix for the aforementioned issues. We will update you once we have more information or a statement from Microsoft about the issue.

  16. Windows 10 KB4535996 update creates fresh trouble for users It looks like Microsoft’s last optional update, Windows 10 KB4535996 has caused a lot of trouble for those who installed it. We reported last week that some users are complaining about BSODs, random freezes while trying to install the latest optional update and as a result of that, the KB4535996 update failed to install. But what is worse is that the update seems to have created new problems for some users. Users on Microsoft Forum, Twitter, and on various other platforms voiced their concerns about the optional update because the update makes it impossible for some users to put their PCs on Sleep mode. Users are complaining that PCs are waking up automatically from the Sleep mode after installing the update. Another user took to Twitter to confirm the existence of such a bug. “Since the latest Windows 10 updates, KB4537572 and KB4535996, my computer is waking itself from sleep every couple of hours. Didn’t do this prior to updates,” a user noted on Twitter. “This needs to be addressed. We should be able to prevent an optional update if it causes problems. No I have to either pause updates for 7 days and then uninstall KB4535996 again. This update causes both my laptop and desktop to not go into sleep mode,” a user wrote on Microsoft’s answer forum. Users are also facing issues such as FPS drops, audio stutters, increased boot times or boot failures. Thankfully, the update is working fine for the majority of the people, meaning only a handful of people are facing problems. But that doesn’t mean these are not pressing issues. Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn’t acknowledged these issues just yet, so there are no official fixes available at this moment. But what you can do is uninstall the latest optional update and that should make everything normal once again. HOW TO UNINSTALL WINDOWS 10 KB4535996 UPDATE Hit Windows+I to open the Settings app Click the “Update & security” option. On the “Update & security” screen. Switch to the “Windows Update” tab. Click the “View update history” option. Click the “Uninstall updates” link. via: Windowslatest Source: Windows 10 KB4535996 update creates fresh trouble for users (MSPoweruser)
  17. Microsoft drops Cortana consumer skills in new Windows 10 update Refocusing on productivity Cortana on Windows 10 is getting some changes, Microsoft announced today, as the company shifts focus for what it wants its personal assistant to be. The new Cortana will emphasize productivity features, like helping to manage your schedule, adding to-do items, or sending emails. As part of that shift, Microsoft is removing some of the older consumer-facing functionality like the ability to control music, manage a smart home, or support for third-party Cortana skills. In other words, Microsoft is going to stop trying to have Cortana emulate Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, and focus more on features that fit in with the rest of Microsoft’s software suite. Microsoft isn’t removing everything from Cortana — you’ll still be able to communicate with the assistant through voice or text, and more basic smart assistant functions like alarms and timers, settings, or conversational answers will still work, too. As part of Microsoft revamping Cortana, it’ll also be removing Cortana from the Microsoft Launcher on Android at the end of April. The updated Cortana will roll out later this spring, but the new productivity features will only launch in the US at first. International users will still be able to get answers from Bing and talk with Cortana, though, with plans to add more features in the future.

  18. February update for Xbox One includes a new design for Home and more After spending some time in testing with Xbox Insiders, the February system update for the Xbox One family is now available to the general public. Xbox One updates are released on a monthly basis, and while some bring more notable improvements than others, this one actually packs a few noteworthy changes, which Microsoft had already gone over. First, there's a new Home dashboard, which finally gets rid of the tabs known as Twists. Instead, there are rows for the My Apps & Games library, Store, Game Pass, and Community. This change is meant to help with the performance of the UI, too. The My Apps & Games section has also been improved, with the ability to group games and apps plus new labels that indicate when a particular software is a demo or trial. If you use Xbox Game Pass, you'll find that you can now download only specific parts of a title that's a bundle, meaning you no longer have to download the whole package to play just one of the games. The messaging experience is also getting an upgrade with support for sending images, so you can share screenshots with your friends more easily. And if you get notifications often, you can now change where they appear on the screen, with a total of six locations to choose from. Finally, there are some improvements to the Mixer integration, specifically if you're watching content. You can now choose a "classic view" that puts the chat on the right side of the stream, and you can also adjust the quality of the stream you're watching. You also get the option to see more information about the streamer themselves. If you want to get the update right now, you'll need to head into the console's settings, but it will also be installed automatically at some point.

  21. Apple’s latest iOS update fixes a location tracking bug and makes Screen Time limits more secure Stop the iPhone 11’s ultra-wideband chip from tracking your location Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Apple today released iOS 13.3.1, and the new update contains two important fixes. First, it eliminates a Communication Limits workaround that allowed younger iPhone users to add contacts without first having to enter a Screen Time passcode. That’ll come as a relief to parents. For the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, you’ll also now find a new toggle to disable location tracking by the U1 Ultra Wideband chip. Apple ran into some controversy last month when security expert Brian Krebs realized that the company’s latest phones were requesting location data even when customers had disabled such tracking in settings. Apple said the iPhone 11’s new U1 chip — and international requirements that prohibit ultra-wideband technology from being used in certain locations — were to blame, adding that this location data was kept on device and not collected by the company. Nevertheless, iPhone owners now have a way to “control the use of location services by the U1 Ultra Wideband chip,” per iOS 13.3.1’s release notes. The new iPhone and iPad update (iPad OS 13.3.1 is also being released today) contains a number of fixes for the Mail app. It gets rid of a bug that potentially allowed remote images to load in emails even when the option was disabled, and it also addresses an issue that caused “multiple undo dialogs to appear in mail.” Rounding it out are fixes for FaceTime, the Photos app (no more delay when editing Deep Fusion photos), CarPlay, and a bug that could prevent push notifications from being delivered over Wi-Fi. For HomePod owners, Indian English has also now been added as the latest Siri voice option. Minor software updates for macOS, watchOS, and tvOS were also released today.

  22. Windows 10 KB4528760 update hit by a frustrating installation bug Microsoft released the January cumulative update KB4528760 for Windows 10 users a couple of days ago. The update introduced a few important security fixes alongside other improvements. However, as is the case with the most Windows 10 Cumulative updates, KB4528760 is not without flaw. A number of users are now reporting installation issues while trying to install Microsoft’s latest cumulative update, KB4528760. At the time of writing, PCs running Windows 10 May 2019 Update and Windows 10 November 2019 Update are affected. In other words, the installation issue is limited to users running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update or Windows 10 November 2019 Update. “Can’t update, getting an “We could not complete the install because an update service was shutting down” error,” a user wrote on Reddit. “There were problems installing some updates, but we’ll try again later. 2020-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1909 for x64-based Systems (KB4528760) – Error 0x800f0988. Troubleshooter, sfc, dism don’t fix error,” another user said. A few Twitter users also corroborated the same story. “Ah, apparently KB4528760 is having issues with downloading, so I wouldn’t bother with it for right now. It failed on my PC as well,” a user wrote on Twitter. However, this is not an officially recognized bug, which means Microsoft is yet to confirm whether it is a bug. Now since it’s not an officially recognized bug, there is no official way of mitigating the issue. On the brighter side, however, except for the installation issues, no other issues have been reported. Also, the issue appears to be limited to a few users only. How many of you installed the latest cumulative update KB4528760 on your Windows 10 PC? Are you facing any issue after installing the cumulative update? Do sound off in the comments section below. via Windowslatest Source: Windows 10 KB4528760 update hit by a frustrating installation bug (MSPoweruser)

  24. Search, Mail, and iMessage get more fixes Apple is releasing iOS and iPadOS 13.2.3 today to address a variety of odd bugs that have been introduced with the release of iOS 13. The latest update includes a fix for the Spotlight system search feature that had been failing for some users recently. Search should now work consistently at the system level and in the Mail, Files, and Notes apps. If you use an app that downloads content in the background and you’ve noticed weird issues in iOS 13.2.2 or before, Apple is now addressing this in the new update. Mail is also getting updated to fix problems fetching new messages or quoting messages from Exchange accounts. The only other fix that’s listed on Apple’s release notes for iOS 13.2.3 is concerning an issue where photos, links, and other attachments haven’t been displaying properly in the iMessage details view. Apple continues to patch up its buggy iOS 13 release, and hopefully we’re closer to a more stable OS now. Apple is also testing betas of iOS 13.3, which is expected to include some fairly minor additions like better support for FIDO2-compliant security keys that use USB, Lightning, or NFC. Today’s iOS 13.2.3 update will also include any security updates for iOS and iPadOS, and you can download it immediately from your settings menu.

  25. Samsung will soon start rolling out the Android 10 + One UI 2.0 update for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series. While Android 10 itself brings a number of new features, Samsung has also improved its skin and added a number of new features to One UI 2.0. Here’s a look at some of the major new One UI 2.0 features. One UI 2.0 will be making its way to all Samsung devices that will get the Android 10 update. One UI itself was a huge overhaul from Samsung in the UI/UX department and it introduced a polish that was previously missing from the company’s devices. With One UI 2.0, Samsung is further polishing its skin while also adding some useful features to it. The Korean giant is already beta testing One UI 2.0/Android 10 for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. You can take part in the beta program if you have an eligible device and if the program is live in your country by using the Samsung Members app. Below is a look at some of the major new features of One UI 2.0/Android 10 that you will be able to enjoy once the update lands on your device. Top new features New animations One UI 2.0 comes with new system animations that are far more fluid in nature. The fluid animations finally help in adding a level of smoothness to Samsung’s UI/UX that can rival iOS. The jank that was usually found in Samsung smartphones due to jerky animations is nowhere to be found in One UI 2.0. Right from the new app opening animation to the app switcher one, every new animation has been thoughtfully designed by Samsung and they don’t feel being added just for the sake of it. Compact Quick settings panel While the Quick Settings panel in One UI 2.0 looks the same as it did in its previous iteration, it now has a more compact layout which means it fits more tiles than before. Its functionality and features remain unchanged though. Android 10 navigation gestures Samsung is adding Google’s new Android 10 gestures to One UI 2.0 as well. This is in addition to its own navigation gestures which were also a part of the original One UI/Android 9.0 Pie release. The new Android 10 navigation gestures are more fluid in nature and are more intuitive to use compared to Samsung’s navigation gestures and the half-baked gestures that Google had debuted in Android 9.0 Pie. The catch here is that one can only use the Android 10 navigation gestures in One UI 2.0 with the stock launcher. Those gestures do not work with third-party launchers. The issue was also present on the Pixel 4 initially before Google got around to adding support for third-party launchers. It is likely that the stable release of One UI 2.0/Android 10 will support third-party launchers. Night mode renamed to Dark mode Samsung added a native Dark mode to One UI almost a year before Google got around to adding it with Android 10. For some strange reason though, Samsung called it Night mode instead of Dark mode. With the One UI 2.0 update, Samsung has renamed Night mode to Dark mode, in line with what Google and Apple are calling it. New Device Care UI The Device Care section has received a UI overhaul in One UI 2.0. It now displays all the relevant information in an easy to understand UI. The battery usage screen also has a new UI which gives more insight into app usage and battery usage over a week, though this feature is a part of Android 10. Redesigned Camera app The Camera app has again received a slight redesign as a part of the One UI 2.0 update. Apart from updated UI elements, Samsung now hides all the available camera modes under the More section which gives the app a cleaner look. You do have the option of customizing the list of modes that are shown above the shutter button so you can keep the ones that you tend to use more and hide others. Slow-motion Selfies Taking a cue from Apple’s book, Samsung has added slow-motion video recording support for the front camera in One UI 2.0. This feature is limited to only flagship Galaxy devices like the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series though. Redesigned volume controls The volume controls have also been redesigned in One UI 2.0. They are now sleeker and smaller in size. OneDrive integration in Gallery app When Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 10 series earlier this year, it announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft. As a part of this partnership, Samsung will phase out all its cloud services and switch its users to offerings from Microsoft. Building on that partnership, Samsung is integrating OneDrive with the Gallery app meaning you can automatically backup all your photos to OneDrive. Samsung has rolled out this feature to selected Galaxy Note 10 units running Android 9.0 Pie but a wider rollout will only happen with the One UI 2.0 + Android 10 update. Enhanced Digital Wellbeing This is a feature that's part of the Android 10 update from Google rather than One UI 2.0. Nonetheless, Digital Wellbeing has been further improved with the addition of Focus mode and Wind Down. The former blocks notifications from all apps except the ones selected by you to help avoid distractions. As for Wind Down, it turns the phone's display into greyscale and blocks notifications making it ideal for use before you go to bed. Improved Pro mode in Camera App The Pro camera mode has been improved and now supports opening the shutter for up to 30 seconds. Previously, this was capped at 10 seconds. The maximum ISO limit has also been increased and one can now bump the ISP up to 3200. Sadly, the Pro mode is still limited to the primary camera and does not support the ultra wide-angle or telephoto camera on devices like the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. Samsung is expected to start rolling out the One UI 2.0 + Android 10 update for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 by the end of this year. One UI 2.0 will also be making its way to older Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, etc. Source: Top features of Samsung's One UI 2.0/Android 10 Update for Galaxy S10 and Note 10 (via Neowin)
